Pros: Once you get over the slight stalker complex Happn instils on you by showing women who walked past your front door an hour ago, matching with users within a 250 meter radius is actually quite handy.

Chances are you live or work in the same area, so arranging a date becomes a lot simpler.

Cons: After sending someone a message, you're notified when they're checking your profile, which means you can actually see yourself being rejected in real time. Verdict: Pulling together the best elements of other older dating apps, Inner Circle is the best all-rounder out there with the highest quantity of people you'd actually like to meet.

£5 a week for the advanced user options is just too much, though.

Parading the hottest – and least obtainable – women in front of your face every time you log in feels a little bit manipulating / cynical.

Verdict: A dating app where women need not fear to tread, where the sting of rejection is largely removed for you. Pros: Less shallow than just swiping from a picture.

Whether they are honest about it or not, every heterosexual internet dating app out there aspires to be the 'Grindr for straight people'. Pros: The screening process ensures out-and-out perverts are banished, which means everyone wins (except the perverts).

The fun and well organised events means membership feels a bit more like a club, and less like pin-balling around a vast galaxy of random singletons.

Pros: You can weed out people with traits or points of view you find simply unacceptable. Cons: Too many basic functions are restricted to paid membership. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.

Verdict: Worth a shot, if only to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Cons: A high number of sexually frustrated virgin-trolls means a lot of women find using it a harrowing experience, which understandably makes them cagey when you come along.

Cons: Tweets are still not a totally accurate picture of someone.

Verdict: A well-intended app that tries to convey your personality rather than just transferring your Instagram feed but the pressure to think up facts can be overwhelming.

Cons: Just because you both like Kings of Leon doesn't really mean you're made for each other...
